GZip database backup file

Feature request from mc388, posted on GitHub Mar 09, 2016

Thanks for fixing the issue #2915 but would it even better if you realy gzip the database backup file to minimize the file size? If you hold >10 backups of a big database you waste disk storage and it is faster to transfer the backup to an other location.

Magento don't need to handle all difficult backup topics but a text file is a great example for compress.

You should avoid using Magento backups and use proper system level database and file backup. Text database backups are hard to restore (time consuming) and should not be used in production environment.
